There's an enormous favorite to be LSU's next head coach


While LSU interim head coach Ed Orgeron has plenty of time to win over the job, updating betting odds have a front-runner completely out of left field.

While most of the talk remains with Tom Herman staying at Houston, or bolting to Texas, has him as the odds on favorite to land with the Tigers.

Here's the list of top candidates (H/T SEC Country)


Tom Herman -165
Ed Orgeron +200
Jimbo Fisher +300
Field +400
Lane Kiffin +1000
Larry Fedora +2500
Art Briles +3000
Bobby Petrino +4000
Sonny Dykes +6000

While Herman remains the favorite, Orgeron has gained some ground and appears to be closing in.

With matchups against Ole Miss and Alabama in the coming weeks, how the Tigers fair could determine the head coaching job less than a month before the season ends.
